12:02 am
continues close to the russian border and according to the spokesperson of the russian border guards shell actually flew into russian territory and injured one of the customs officers and damaged that building as well now moscow is outrage and demands a quick in this occasion and the problems of knowledge from the crematorium meanwhile we've heard that ukrainian defense ministry had already denied all these accusations that any shooting took place near the russian border and russia is not concerned about the security in this area the president ordered back up for russian border guards in order to exclude such events from happening in the future and events happened before the armored personnel carriers went in sort of the russian territory and other incidents like that happening as well the military crackdown in eastern ukraine has caused hundreds of deaths and displaced thousands of people but
12:03 am
now president poroshenko has imposed a seven day cease fire under a new peace plan and take a look at includes an amnesty for those who agree to lay down their arms and who haven't committed grievous crimes the creation of a ten kilometer wide buffer zone along the border with russia changes to the constitution to guarantee the free and safe use of the russian language also the decentralization of power to the eastern regions early local and parliamentary elections are guaranteed and one of the plan's top points that is to guarantee safety for all the negotiating sides although himself is refusing to hold talks with leaders of the self-proclaimed republic. before the ceasefire was implemented as the army had been targeting cities across the east sometimes heating residential areas with fatal results. she didn't get what self-esteem she would be thirty nine are going to. have despicable people switch off the camera.

this family was left devastated when a mortar shell hit their back yard a young mother was killed on the spot her five year old son was taken to hospital with multiple head wounds and doctors there fought for five hours to try to save his life but he died of his injuries on the operating table marks laborde a senior lecturer in international relations and security studies at moscow state university believes that president poroshenko peace plan is an ultimatum. the promises that they are guaranteeing for the russian language were what they already had before the sports regime seized power and started to try to take away the russian language rights from the people as well this decentralization is not clearly defined but what we have seen so far is that only includes local executive committees governors would still have the right to be overruled and appointed by
12:05 am
kiev so there really is no decentralization. in this agreement and there is no greater protection for russian language than already has existed the intention of the plan is to ensure as swift and as thorough a military victory as possible that is what this document says this document is in no way shape or form a peace plan it is an ultimatum and a promise of further military force. of those warm sun points impersonators playing could lead to greater bloodshed rather than resolve the crisis will report a little bit more on that. next though this is the f. thirty five stealth fighter jet america's most violent and most expensive war plane the pentagon spending four hundred billion dollars on its development in a program that fell seven years behind schedule and billions of dollars over budget
12:06 am
and experts point to numerous glitches that they say made the f. thirty five something different to what has been advertised but despite this the plane is still being touted to foreign buyers as a technological marvel as artie's marina port no no explains. the f. thirty five stealth fighter jet is the crime to look kramm of military planes. and the pentagon's most expensive conventional weapons program it's a game changer the world's only fifth generation fighter jet is manufactured by lockheed martin combining state of the art technology with highly advanced avionics and maneuverability the pentagon plans to buy nearly twenty five hundred f. thirty five but delays and cost increases have left u.s. lawmakers frustrated over the three hundred eighty five billion dollar price tag and that's where america's allies come in. lockheed martin has turned to international partners including britain australia and canada collectively the
12:07 am
countries have invested more than twenty billion dollars buying up the war craft a weapon that many experts view as a global gamble there's never been anything anywhere near as expensive and the entire process is one in which the costs can only go up. the other problem is that the more they spend in the more the united states and the manufacturer and now a whole bunch of other countries become invested more they have to go ahead any of these countries that want to become good feel that they have no choice boosting demand from foreign investors is believed to be essential for the pentagon and lockheed martin why because the more f. thirty five are produced the cheaper each jet. arena for niamh hearty. well the f. thirty five has been suffering one sent back after another in the most recent case the entire fleet was grounded and testing was suspended after one of the planes
12:08 am
suffered an oil leak but the engines are not the only parts where the aircraft is experiencing problems in fact as you can see here the plane is actually been suffering hot spots and cracks head to tail it flies only in good weather and the computers that run it they still lack the software they need for combat we spoke to the aircraft designer who says that on top of the technical glitches the f. thirty five program is also plagued by bureaucracy. it's one of the worst airplanes we've ever designed. for a lot of reasons but the most important reason is that it was compromised by having to do three different jobs you can never make a good airplane if you don't focus on a single single mission and then they made it even worse by saying that we'd save money by giving it up among three services so now you have three missions pulling the airplane in different directions now you have three services three bureaucracies adding their parochial points of view the
12:09 am
airplane was a complete mess and mind you this is the most expensive single project that the that the defense department has ever undertaken. so to come for you this hour solving the ugly side of the beautiful game russia has faced tough task to contain football hooliganism as it prepares to take over from brazil but some think the issue is being blown. around stay with us to find out how an online technology used as evidence of criminality against one u.s. hacker is now permitted for a giant corporation. thanks to an online push by the u.s. to promote a transatlantic partnership deal with europe has been met with criticism on both sides of the ocean an offer of twenty thousand dollars to anybody who comes out with lucrative trade ideas is being seen as a cheap stunts compared to the potential damage to the ponce the massive
12:10 am
cooperation agreement could. has the details the united states has been accused of a cynical propaganda campaign after a tweet originated from its embassy just behind me here. this tweet was with regard to the transatlantic trade and investment partnership between europe and the united states now the tweet was offering up to twenty thousand u.s. dollars for any projects people could come. that would protect the treat deal in a good light though it has come in for some scathing criticism from people here in europe mostly because of worries over a decrease in standards the standards for products in europe are far higher than they are in the united states also on workers' rights as well now this is seen and vajra mentalist environmentalists trade unions and health campaign is all railing against this trade deal to put that into perspective of the public opinion here in
12:11 am
europe when it comes to the environment ninety six percent of germans say they have faith in european environmental regulation well only two percent believe in regulations inforced in the united states there's also been controversy surrounding genetically modified foods not like here in europe people have demonstrated against them however there is concern that because of u.s. labeling laws they become into the european markets so all of these things the same criticism all of this well it's kind of backfired they have come in for far more criticism online because of this. the transatlantic deal does look fairly good on paper. the partnership would allow to remove trade barriers any regulate the difference is hindering growth of the u.s. all the easy call to me would be washed away plus america and europe's collective
12:12 am
g.d.p. could get a boost of around two hundred fifty billion dollars but critics believe that some of the pieces of the puzzle just don't fit they're worried that corporations would end up ruling governments and because of that taxpayers would end up footing the bill for anything that could go wrong and it would be almost impossible to hold any corporation to account because of the sheer size of that structure and the lack of transparency american michael shank of the friends committee on national legislation believes all that is an opportunity for the u.s. and the e.u. to flex their muscles while it's good for investors it's bad for health it's bad for the environment it's bad for labor and it's bad for regulations that countries and states have worked for decades to institute so those are some of the biggest concerns and what it says to russia or what it says to china with the t p p is that we don't want you a part of this conversation and in this very globalized interconnected world particular in trade because we don't have many barriers between us and e.u.
12:13 am
already so when we're doing t.j. it's not really about removing trade barriers because the tariffs are quite low it's about saying to the rest of the world we have this partnership it's exclusive and you're not going to be a part of it do stay with us here on a plane to mourn you still to come join you more after this short break. to all your confusion any for all about what they're going to do a bunch of israelis think the european union's a job they don't listen to i'm sure they're a new we will welcome we do mean if the european union upset what can you do both ukraine for itself. move. move. move. move move.

right. to picture. from around the. globe. welcome back you're watching r.t. international let's talk football now because russian football fans may cause the national team to be deducted points in the world cup for reportedly displaying near nazi banners joining their sides first match in brazil if that's proven the incident could add to a considerable track record of russian football hooliganism but also features pitch attacks mass street rallies and nationalist clashes but as the country prepares to host the next big tournament in four years it's working hard on solutions to select exploits. showing support for your team in russia could mean this

this. or this. your first in one thousand nine hundred eighty when spacek was playing says scar in moscow we had a huge fight great blue warriors came up against us there was more than eight hundred people involved in a brawl but you know and that is just one of the fights i see described now a retired hooliganism says fan culture has changed massively russia is today if you've a stereotype of an english football hooligan or an italian alger's is no longer applied to us we went our own way now there are no loud criminal cases against hewlett guns compared to the ninety's back in the soviet days football was considered one of the nation's sprites history's best goalkeeper left us and the team which won the first ever european championship and the police of revolutionary managers with the break up of the soviet union football just as many other spheres
12:18 am
of life suffered a major setback it may be a coincidence but along with these problems came in isn't it still unclear what caused the surge in violence but in recent years russian hooligans have remained visible from violent pitch invasions to mass three grannies and racist incidents involving swastikas in the stands near nazi views and you know phobia are among the most debated issues back in twenty ten when a fan was two of you were fighting in moscow that escalated into ethnic violence thousands of ultras made themselves heard right outside the walls of the kremlin. look at all politically motivated people have always been close to find groups not only have they propagandize the culture of violence but they explained why this violence was needed that's why nazi views are popular there because force and violence are the basis of naziism and fascism in the form of hooligan founder of russia's largest fan movement their market and i have believes that is. she was often blown up in the press and problems are usually solved even before they appear
